Re-entering a rejected suggestion dismisses it silently

Bug Description

Once a suggestion has been rejected, either by choosing a different suggestion as the current translation or by using the "dismiss suggestions" checkbox, it cannot be entered again. So if another user comes by and makes the same suggestion again, not being aware that it was rejected before, the suggestion just seems to go into /dev/null. No change is visible in the UI.

Instead, the user should be informed about what is happening.
"This suggestion has been made been made before but has already been reviewed and rejected. Please ask one of the reviewers to go over all obsolete translations to activate it anyway."

Note that this will have to happen after we provide a listing of obsolete suggestions in a zoomed in view, when we can also provide a link people can give to reviewers.

For reference:
18:54 danilos : adiroiban, if you ever want to fix that, you'll have to provide a new method addASuggestion() or something,
                   similar to what you did for this bug, and move the functionality out of updateTranslation method and add
                   new functionality you want :)
18:54 danilos : adiroiban, and again, moved the logic to decide what to do out into browser code
